The design of the new Girard-Perregaux Chrono Hawk Pink Gold combines the preciousness of pink gold with the technical nature of black ceramic and rubber. The result is an exclusive sporty chronograph easily recognisable for the sharp-cornered, sculptural case where the dark components heightens the warmth of the gold.
The frame of the case is produced from satin-finished pink gold and measures 44 mm in diameter. It serves as the basic structure that incorporates the other components. Composed of 62 different parts, the case of the Chrono Hawk Pink Gold is water-resistant to a depth of 100 metres.
The highly resistant and scratch-proof ceramic is used for the bezel and for the chronograph push piece parts, including the push piece protectors and the crown.
The motif of the dial of the Chrono Hawk Pink Gold is inspired by the shape of the famous Girard-Perregaux Tourbillon Bridges while the three-dimensionality of the dial is accentuated by the inclined flange graduated with the minutes scale. The indexes and the hands are treated with luminescent material to enable night reading.
The small seconds are viewed on a subdial at 3 o'clock, while the chronograph functions are displayed via the central seconds hand and a subdial at 9 o'clock for the minutes. An aperture at 6 o'clock shows the date.
The Girard-Perregaux Chrono Hawk Pink Gold (ref. 49970-34-633-BB6B) is powered by the in-house automatic movement GP03300 beating at 28,800 vibrations per hours and offering a power reserve of 46 hours. The distinctive arrow-shaped oscillating weight is visible through the sapphire crystal case-back.
